80 Dovecote Road, Eastwood – our new development in Eastwood, completion expected 2021/22

A mixed development of 18 houses on a vacant site in Newthorpe, Nottinghamshire. The site will feature a mix of 2,3 & 4 bedroom detached houses and bungalows, all detached on a southerly facing slope. The properties will be constructed using traditional building methods and built to a high specification (using the same materials as Stanhope close we constructed 2 years ago). The properties are heated by main gas and are all ready to connect to BT & Virgin media’s high speed fibre broadband network. (Properties on the neighbouring site we constructed achieve 300MB download speeds).

The development is convenient for people working in Nottingham, Derby and further afield based on its proximity to Junction 25 of the M1, Langley Mill train station offers a direct service to London. The large Giltbrook Ikea retail park is just over a mile away whilst the highly rated Horse and Groom pub in Moorgreen is just under a mile’s walk away. There are many walks in the local area including the Beauvale priory tea rooms.

The development of 18 houses is made up of:

Level of customisation

Buyers will be able to specify tiles, kitchen & worktop ranges, higher levels of customisation are not possible because we are not set up to build customer homes for people. Once you have purchased the home you will be free to make whatever changes you want. 

Warranties

A 10 year council of mortgage lenders approved new build structural warranty will be provided before completion with the properties.

Social housing

We are paying the council £54,000 in lieu of providing it on site. All properties will therefore be for private sale.

Cleaning

We include a “builders” clean in the sale process, if however you require a “sparkle” clean (which takes us about 3 days to complete) this is available for an additional cost of £750.

To register your interest please email sales@swallowhillhomes.com

Sales Process

The decision of which buyer shall be entirely at the discretion of Swallow Hill Homes.

Sale process

We will open the whole of the development to reservations on Monday the 21st of September, we will then review any offers we have received on Wednesday 30th of September at 9am, if your offer is successful you will be able to reserve the property up to its completion date. Buyers will be asked to lodge 1% of the purchase price as a deposit which will be paid to our solicitors and held on your behalf in their client account.  If the sale does not proceed this is refundable to you less £900 for our legal expenses and the cost of any time spent by Swallow Hill Homes team spent on your house purchase. During the reservation period a legal pack will be presented to your solicitors and ideally we will be expected to exchange on the property with completion on notice. We realise that this may not be practical for people with homes to sell so we may at our discretion agree to exchange and completion when the property is ready in some circumstances. A full copy of the reservation form and its details can be found on our website below.

We will not have a show home open at this point, interested parties can get an idea of the exterior finish by looking at Stanhope Close next door. Buyers will be able to choose tile finishes and kitchen finishes (some of which may incur an additional costs) but there will be a limited amount customers can amend in terms of specification. We are not able to offer bespoke house’s on this development as we need to stick to our build schedule.
